Stinus Aggen --- Calumet County Reporter --- November 17, 1916
After a long illness and a gradual decline extending over a period of nearly a year, Stinis Aggen, a highly respected citizen of this community, closed his eyes in sleep everlasting, Friday afternoon, Nov. 10th. Although expert physicians from Milwaukee had months ago been called into consultation with the local physicians, nothing could be done to arrest the progress of the disease, cirrhosis of the liver, and for a ,number of weeks past it was evident that the end was not distant. Stinus Aggen was born in Ostfriesland, Germany, April 26, 1859. In 1863 the family emigrated to this country, and located on a farm two miles west of the village, where Mr. Aggen grew to manhood, and where in 1881, he was united in marriage to Miss Foelke Bruns. Until two and a half years ago, he operated the old Aggen farm; but when his children had grown up and had flown the home nest, he sold out and moved into his residence on Mill street, where he resided until his death. He is survived by his widow, six sons and four daughters, nine grandchildren, five brothers, one sister and his aged mother. Funeral services were held at the Reformed Church, Tuesday afternoon, after which the body was laid to rest in New Holstein cemetery.
